Kareni gave us a darling story
In the fifties, New Zealand had such a small population that they were paying ship passage for young people to come out and settle there. First my aunt went and settled there. My mother left the Netherlands and traveled on the same ship that my father was working on as a purser. She was in a crowded cabin and was very seasick. A different young man who she met onboard invited her to stay in his less crowded cabin. Her cabinmates reported her missing and a shipwide search commenced. My father found her … in the other man's cabin. This was all quite innocent, but she was rebuked.
My mother and aunt saved money to bring their mother to NZ. My grandmother met my father on what was his own last purser voyage before he too settled in NZ. Sometime later, my mother and grandmother encountered my father on the street and invited him to my mother's wedding. She'd become engaged to that other young man in whose cabin she had stayed.
That wedding didn't happen …. (I guess you'll have to read that unwritten book to find out more.)
